The Forms and the Life

The study reconstructs Georg Simmel’ thought as oriented towards a „this-worldly metaphysics” through the analysis of his sociological writings. In this term, the attempts of this author of high sensibility to grasp everyday phenomenons philosopically, sociologically, and aesthetically could be subsumed. The starting point of this intellectual movement is the interpersonal world with all its „things”, its axis is the genuine „tragic” of culture, whereas its endpoint is the lastly unspecifyable individual „more than life” of man.
